Get to Steppin'
My life, your life...is a series of new beginnings and new dimensions. As much as we would like for it to be, there are no short cuts to some destinations. Exodus 13:17b says, "... so happened that after Pharaoh released the people, God didn’t lead them by the road through the land of the Philistines, which was the shortest route...” The truth is your first step to a new beginning is usually the hardest. You may ask yourself, "Do I really want to do this?" or "Am I making the right move?" Psalm 37:23 reminds us, "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way." However, it does say that the steps will be easy steps. You will face uncertainties, people would do not believe in you, and disappointments on your journey, but keep stepping. Each step takes you further and higher. At times you may be tempted to give up, stop or walk away. Don't do it; victory is in front of you. And, let me tell you there is nothing like a win. If you stick around for the win, you'll be reminded that every disappointment, heartache, struggle, and hurt was worth it. Not only is this your time to win, it is your winning season. We are designed to move from one finish line to another. So instead of throwing in the towel, wipe your eyes and get to stepping!
